Great Coat

Postby Waldiebeast » Sun Aug 28, 2011 10:06 am

Hey guys, I was just on epicmilitaria and I saw this soviet army coat. I don't know much about it and I would love it if somebody could help. Also, does anybody know a good place to get a cheap tunic (M35 or M43). Thankyou :)

The greatcoats at epic look like aren't actually Soviet but Bulgarian. Soviet enlisted Shinels wear brown post 1941 and have hook and eye closure not buttons. If you can convert them to remove the buttons they might make a passable early war grey Shinel though.
For a tunic try HIKIshop or Koliya85 on ebay. Both HK based so nice & local for you.

Thanks :) I might just get one anyway for the price considering it will go along with my post war ushanka. I'll see If I can modify it in any way seeing it is rather cheap.

HIKIshop unfortunately doesn't ship to HK for some reason and the sizes are just a tad big. I can't find koliya85. Thanks anyway :)
